Support The Rebel Taiko Experiment
Who We Are
Rebel Taiko Experiment is a Japanese drumming ensemble located at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas - we are the first and only collegiate taiko group in the state of Nevada! Our group was founded in the Fall semester of 2015, with the help of local community taiko groups Korabo Taiko & LV Kaminari Taiko.
Our mission is to practice and spread the art of taiko drumming to audiences across Nevada and beyond. We recruit and teach UNLV students, practice taiko, write new material, and perform as much as we can. We have performed at many gigs, an out-of-state conference, and even held our own concert at UNLV. As a young and passionate ensemble, we strive to put our own spin on taiko.
Why We Need YOUR Help
Since our inception, we have had to borrow rehearsal space and equipment from local groups to practice and perform. As an ever-growing ensemble, however, we cannot rely on other groups forever. For us to last, we NEED a set of our own professional taiko drums that we can use to practice and perform at UNLV.
With the funds raised from this campaign, our organization will buy a set of professional taiko drums that will last for decades!
